Tirex to Arrange $3,390,000 in Funding for Mirdita VMS District

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2010) - Tirex Resources (TSX VENTURE:TXX) is pleased to announce that it is arranging $3,390,000 in financing for ongoing advanced stage work and exploration work at its Mirdita VMS District located in Albania.

Tirex has arranged $750,000 in equity financing by way of a private placement of 6,250,000 shares at $0.12 per share. Upon closing of this equity raise, Tirex will fully qualify to draw down EUR 2,000,000 (CAD $2,640,000) under the terms of its funding facility with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development ("EBRD"). The funds from EBRD will bear interest at LIBOR plus 1.5% and will be convertible into Tirex common shares at $0.62 per share (see Tirex News Release dated October 8th, 2008 for details on the facility).

The Tirex program at Mirdita is two-fold. The first part of the program consists of advanced stage work in known zones of mineralization. The second component of the program is pure exploration, targeting discovery. To-date, Tirex has completed approximately 20,000 metres of core drilling in 64 holes. Wide zones of robust and precious-metal rich VMS mineralization were intersected by Tirex in the areas Koshaj, South Gurthi and Letitna (as previously announced).
